    Hey all!
    So I did a fish less cycle on my new 20 gal and then I added 2 of my platies from my other tank to keep the BB happy. I want to buy some pygmy cories for the new cycled tank so I am wondering if I move my platies back to their tank will the BB that was supporting my 2 platies be enough to support 6 cories since their bio load is a lot less than the platies? Thanks!

    Yes it shouldn't be a problem. Just monitor water conditions for a couple days. I always add Stability for a couple days afterwards to deal with any possible ammonia/nitrite spikes.
